In the last chapter I read from Susan Rosenthal's Power and Powerlessness, I felt compelled to respectfully disagree with her assertion that human population growth was not in itself a problem. While I agree with her point that hunger is caused by maldistribution of food resulting from our political economic system, I disagree with assertion that environmentalists who raise the issue of overpopulation a are either witting or unwitting supporters of a racist and genocidal world view. When I say respectfully disagree, I mean it about the respect part. Dr. Rosenthal is not the only eminent, or sincere thinker who has this view.
